## Nephelometry & Turbidimetry: Instrumentation, Principal & MCQ with Answers

Nephelometry :-

It is deals with analysis of colloidal system. It is based on the scattering of light by particle suspended in a liquid.

Principal :-

• Nephelometry is concerned with measure of the intensity of scattered light as a function of concentration of the suspended particle in a suspension.
• Intensity of scattered light is directly proportional to the concentration of the suspended particle.
• Hence greater concentration of particle more the intensity of light.
• The intensity of the scattered light is usually measure at 90° to the incident light.

Turbidimetry :-

It deal with analysis of colloidal system and the technique is based on transmission of light by particle suspended in a liquid.

Principal :-

• Turbidimetry is concerned with the measure of the intensity of the transmitted light as a function of concentration of the suspended particle in a suspension.
• The intensity of transmitted light is measured in a line i.e 180° to the incident light.
• Intensity of  transmitted light is inversely proportional to the concentration of the suspended particle
• Hence concentration is more transmission is less.

Instrumentation of Nephelometry & Turbidimetry :-

1. Radiation source :- The common radiation source is used as tungsten filament.

2. Monochromator :- usually prisms or grating monochromator are used.

3. Detector :- mostly Photomultiplier tube are use.

4. Filter :- There are two types of filter are used

A. Absorption filter

B. Interference filter

5. Read out Device :- micro computer are used as read out device.
